Clash of the Titans

I saw on television that there is a remake of Clash of the Titans coming out. Weird, but I used to love watching that movie.
It seemed that it was on television every time I was visiting my grandma and grandpa in Cincinnati. One time in particular, they were showing it in 3-D. You had to buy an Icee at the Convenience store to get your 3-D glasses. I mean, I HAD to drink an Icee to watch Clash of the Titans? In 3-D?? Twist my arm!!
It was in the 80’s. I could not have been older than 7 or 8. I had a crush on George Hamilton in a loin cloth. Medusa scared the heck out of me.
It was blissful. And I was at my grandparents, which was blissful in itself.
Frozen mini Snickers in the freezer.
An actual cookie jar!
Hugs. Laughs.
Cards. For money. (okay it was only pennies, but it still made it that more fun.)
Singing.
Skyline.
And Clash of the Titans.
These are some of my absolute favorite memories.
I can’t wait to hear 20 years from now what my children’s favorite memories were of visiting grandparents. I think they will have a lot.
It is getting warmer here now that spring has arrived. An unusual 80 degrees today!
It makes me have a hankering for summer. And the food summer has to provide.
Cucumber, Onion, and Tomato Salad
1 large cucumber
1 large vadalia onion
2 large tomatoes
1/2 c White Vinegar
3 Tb Sugar
2 Tb Canola Oi
Skin and slice cucumber into thin slices. Do the same to the onion. Cut tomato in half, then into slices about 1/2″ thick.
In a bowl whisk sugar and vinegar. Whisk in oil.
Place vegetables in a large ziplock bag. Pour dressing over vegetables and close bag tightly. Move it around so dressing is evenly distributed. Place in the refrigerator for 3-6 hours.
